After stopping Meta on Friday, Kanye West released it on Twitter for the first time in almost two years – a move praised by Elon Musk, who is selling the social network.
West, who changed his name to Ye, tweeted a photo of a hat that said 2024. Musk responded with his own tweetread “Welcome back to Twitter, friends!”
West posted it on Twitter in November 2020, right after the US presidential election. After his first tweet on Friday, West put another one on topincluding a picture of him with Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who allegedly fired him on Instagram.
In a statement to CNN Business on Saturday, a Meta spokesperson said content was removed from West’s account for violating company policy and a ban was placed on his account. It did not say what the objection was about the content or what kind of restrictions were imposed.
The move came after West shared a now-deleted post with a photo of an interview with Sean “Diddy” Combs that the American Jewish Committee condemned as “anti-Semitic.”
West was suspended by Instagram for 24 hours in March for running a prank on “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah.
Earlier this week, West sparked controversy by wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt and outfitting some Black students in shirts with the same phrase, which he called a “bad bear.” by the Anti-Defamation League, at its fashion show in Paris.
